I am very disappointed that John Bolton, well-known for his hostility to the United Nations, was given a free pass to attack the UN's humanitarian efforts. All the humanitarian agencies of the United Nations tried everything they could to offer help. There were UN cargo planes on the ground in Bangkok ready to go. Short of using force, there was nothing more the UN could do to help with the Burmese military regime refusing entry to all aid organizations. At the very least, Bolton should have been challenged to say what the UN could have done. Given his well-know prejudices I wonder why he was chosen for this topic.
How can John Bolton sit there and say..what about the neighbors? Why haven’t they done anything?
That is ridiculous, if you are in a crowd and someone is having a heart attack and the whole group knows CPR….Does that mean that if you are in the back of the crowd and no one is helping, does that mean its ok for you with your knowledge of CPR to stay out of the situation?
NO.. ethically you are required to help. I am considerably disappointed by Mr. Bolton’s attitude. How incredibly isolationist.
